Tips for Promoting Your Event

| October 15, 2013 | 1 Comment

Do you have an event that you’d like to promote to Catholics throughout our local Church? Here are some ways you can “get the word out” about your event!

The Catholic Spirit Editorial Coverage

Is your event unique and exceptionally newsworthy? It may be considered for a story in The Catholic Spirit, the official publication of our local Church. If you would like your event considered for coverage, contact editor Maria Wiering at or call (651) 291-4455. 

The Catholic Spirit Calendar of Events

If your parish or organization is hosting a great event you’d like to share with other Catholics in our archdiocese*, please submit your event via The Catholic Spirit Calendar Submissions form. Events are posted on The Catholic Spirit website under Local Events, and events of a unique nature and/or of broad appeal may appear in a print edition as well.

The Catholic Spirit Advertising

It’s easy to advertise your event with The Catholic Spirit, in our biweekly print edition or on The Catholic Spirit website. To learn more about advertising in The Catholic Spirit, please contact our Advertising Department by calling (651) 291-4444 (ask to speak with an advertising representative), or visit our Advertising page on The Catholic Spirit website.

Calendar of Events on the Archdiocesan Website

Another way to share your event* with other Catholics in our local Church is on the Events page our archdiocesan website. Events featuring well-known Catholic speakers, retreats and other ministry events of broad appeal are featured, alongside archdiocesan events. To suggest an event, please fill out our online form.

Weekly Bulletin E-Newsletter

An email newsletter is sent to all parish bulletin editors and/or parish secretaries within our local Church containing announcements and events within the archdiocese. The email is sent on Thursdays (for publication in bulletins a week and a half later). Content must be received by end of day the Wednesday two weeks prior to publication. Content is selected for inclusion on a space-available basis. To submit an event for consideration, please email Mary Wiebusch at Please include “Parish Bulletin Content” in the subject line, as well as the ideal date of the e-newsletter in which you would like your event mentioned.

*Note: All events must promote and uphold the values and teachings of the Catholic Church. Events must be connected with a parish or school within the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis and/or a local Catholic organization. Events must also appeal to a broad audience of Catholics, beyond an individual parish.
